these laws tom has led the way in enacting. >> but there are a lot of people who don't think this is an issue, unfortunately, sadly. i know you are a big believer in this in mental health and good physical health and the link to academics. could you talk about that, please? >> all the research points to having a hele cases of bullying in the schools? have those cases come to you? >> some of them have. of course reading, having the interaction with tom as a legislator, we're good friends and he has spearheaded taking the personal from the families' perspective and his own experiences and targeted it toward legislation. there's far too much of it. part of the training, the law that was passed talks about school personnel reporting but doesn't cover volunteers. how do we reach out to make sure the campus volunteers are also trained? how do we have the victims find a way to be brave enough to report it, that they are being bullied and to talk to some trusted adult about that. >> and see those things don't cost money. one gets very artful, as the former senator knows, when you good out bef
of a product should be in its price. nonrepealable laws of nature, laws of physics, laws of chemistry are at work and history's judgment will be harsh if we continue to fail in respecting those laws. i urge a "no" vote and yield back to the senator from washington. the presiding officer: the senator from washington. mrs. murray: mr. president, i raise a point of order that the pending amendment is not germane to the underlying resolution and therefore violates section 305-b-2 of the congressional budget act of 1974. the presiding officer: the senator from missouri. mr. blunt: mr. president, i move to waive section 305-b-2 of the congressional budget act for consideration of the pending amendment number 261 pursuant to 904-c of the congressional budget act of 1974. and would ask for a volt. mrs. murray: ask for the yeas and nays. the presiding officer: is there a sufficient second? there appears to be. the clerk will call the roll on the motion to waive the budget acted. -- motion to waive the budget act. vote: the presiding officer: is there anyone wishing to vote or change their vote
into law the nation's first ban on possession of halopoint ammunition in san francisco. we worked closely with supervisor cohen to introduce this legislation. these extra deadly bullets have no place in our streets. we are also creating an early warning system to alert us when individuals make massive purchases of ammunition, because even if there is a remote possibility we can prevent another tragedy, we are morally bound to do so. and we must support president obama and senator finestien comprehensive effort to reform the gun laws, i support state and federal effort to keep the weapons off of our streets and out of our homes. i have directed our city agencies and law enforcement officials to move towards plans of action, to prioritize and create solutions that impact policy changes and take aggressive actions against the moment egregious types of gun violence and we are working hard and making more plans for more deeper, more wider gun buy back programs and events that will take place later this year. but no single mayor can stop gun violence alone. if we work together, as a city, as a
't do that because of the laws in my political jurisdiction or whatever, we are not allowed to do that. then there's going to be other things when you think, gosh, i never thought about that, i think that would work really good. i'm going to take it back it my jurisdiction. probably over the past few years i've got 500 people i've dealt with, officers that have come to the class and subsequently become gravanis experts and set up programs. almost every program is different. a lot of the basis is the same, the information is consistent worldwide but people will tweak what information they are going to use and how they are going to be allowed to operate. some are in plain cars, some in marked units, it all depends how it's going to go. take the information you get, there's so much good information here today and tomorrow, take the information you want, take it back and integrate it into however you are going to work your program. when we come right down to it, it's not important what you know, it's what you can prove in court. probably every officer sitting in this room can say i ha
, when we passed a bill establishing a national housing trust fund, and the law said that the proceeds would fund the national housing system and help low income families. my district of many annapolis -- minneapolis has an occupancy rate of 98%. he could use the help to provide -- the gse issee compliant with a law that would fund a trust fund. >> we have been complying with the law from the beginning. couldicated that fhfa make determinations based on the financial conditions of the companies not to contribute money to the funds. that has been an ongoing determination. >> who you see that changing? what is the future of funding the national housing trust fund given the profitability? >> i want to make sure the profitability is sustainable. i am mindful that -- of money owed to the treasury department. if they do not go to the trust fund, they go back to the taxpayer. i would want to give your question more careful consideration. >> i appreciate that. proceeds can go in different directions -- some to pay the taxpayers, some to fund the housing trust fund. have talked to people about
a couple of years now since we passed the health care law, it's becoming evident to all americans that there were, in fact, many new taxes, almost a trillion dollars of new taxes in the health care law. and despite the president's firm pledge at that time not to raise taxes by even one dime on middle-class americans, i at that time asked the joint tack committee to evaluate the law and tell us if there were such took in the law. the letter i received back from joint tax indicated there were at least seven taxes in the health care law that did squarely hit the middle class, and not just in a small way. it's about at least a quarter of a trillion dollars of new taxes that the middle class will pay if we don't fix it. in fact, it's 73 million american families that will ultimately pay this new tax in the obamacare legislation if we don't reform it. so this is an amendment i have brought during the consideration of the health care law. it was defeated then by a claim that there were no taxes in the bill. we now know there are took in the bill. this is just our chance now that these ta
to that. and it is about state leadership, not just looking at the civil rights laws for protection, but -- and it certainly is our job to vigorously enforce them -- but it is your job as superintendent to (inaudible) even where the federal civil rights laws don't protect you. so it's a case of taking what you are doing, what folks are doing across the country and putting those on places like stopbullying dwofl .org so we can scale those up around the country. >> recognizable face. >> (inaudible) and i'm also head of the san francisco commission on women and the lieutenant governor asked about data. actually we do have data on bullying in san francisco high schools, particularly bullying among lgbt girls. so for the first time this year we've incorporated data that kevin coggin and ilsa (inaudible) provided and their suicide rates are off the charts, lesbian girls in our district. it's actually from the cdy youth risk survey. i want to offer that as a resource to folks in this room and encourage you in this pursuit of data. >> thank you. >> my question centers around the point o
sessions is very straightforward. it restates current law. let hey rate that. it restates current law which already explicitly excludes undocumented immigrants who are in this country from obtaining benefits sufficient as tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies when obtaining health insurance coverage. we debated this at length during health care reform and this exemption was included in the final bill to address concerns of some of our republican colleagues that undocumented immigrants would somehow be able to receive the benefits we included in the law. that is why we specifically and splicexplicitly excluded them fm being able to obtain this type of consequently. addressing the issue issues of immigrant families is currently being done in a bipartisan fashion. the last thing we need to do is to try to muck that up. so this is not a great way to do your outreach to the hispanic and immigrant community. so i urge our colleagues just to stay with present law, let's restate it once again. support our amendment and reequity j the sessions amendment. -- and reject the sessions a.m. mr. sessions
-time employee averages just 30 hours a week. that definition is not found in other areas of the law, and it's creating this perverse incentive where employers are actually reducing the number of hours that their employees work in order to keep under that 30-hour threshold and thus avoid penalties. all this amendment does, however, is call for a more sensible definition of what a full-time employee should entail. i would ask consent that we voice vote the amendment. the presiding officer: the senator from washington. mrs. murray: i was going to offer amendment number 653 but i'm not going to call that amendment up and i would agree with senator collins on her amendment and ask for a voice vote. the presiding officer: the question is on amendment number 144. if there's no further debate, all those in favor say aye. all those opposed say no. the ayes appear to have it. the ayes do have it. mrs. murray: movement reconsider. the presiding officer: the amendment is agreed to. ms. collins: move to lay it on the table. mrs. murray: for the information of all senators we have gone through all the am
is a far cry from what you'll have to do if you ever decide to go back to law school, because you will have to work 70 or 80 hours a week. >> right. >> so there's nothing too much wrong with getting some practice. >> right. >> michelle completed all the challenges, but did she get all the lessons? until she gets a full-time job, there's no way to make her budget balance. so will she succeed in the long term? only time will tell. but my time with her's up. i think that you have a huge amount of distance to go. i believe that you look very carefully for direction, that you haven't yet developed the maturity to find your own way, and so if they leave you to be self-directing, you flounder a bit. you start defining yourself by all the wrong things, like sunglasses and shoes and handbags. >> right. >> so i think one of the things you have to work on is developing that sense of what it is you want and how you're gonna be self-directing for the rest of your life. because the last thing you want to be is the person who only takes direction. >> okay. >> make sense? >> yeah, that makes sense. >> i ha
of the process. complementing the law -- implementing the law is another part of the process. if we don't have faith in this administration now, what about trust for the future? so my amendment would require the u.s. immigration and customs enforcement to submit weekly reports. just submit reports to the house and senate committees on appropriations and the judiciary. the reports will be required to contain detailed budget on how i.c.e. will maintain the 34-,000 detention bed occupancy levels authorized by congress. it also requires i.c.e. to provide the number of aliens released from detention as well as the following information on -- following information on aliens' release for budget-related purposes, the conviction or charge for which they were detained, fugitive status, existing of prior deportation order and the release -- terms of release. my amendment has been to be cosponsored by inhofe, vitter, boozman, mcconnell. and that's the cosponsorship. within the last few days we've had the director of i.c.e., mr. morton testify yesterday in the house. chairman goodlatte said his testimony r
than one minute. we believe this is current law. we will accept a voice vote. the presiding officer: the yeas and nays were already ordered on this amendment. does the senator from wyoming -- mr. barrasso: a voice vote would be acceptable. the presiding officer: without objection, the yoins ar -- the s and nays are vitiated. all in favor say aye. all opposed, say no. the amendment is agreed to. the senator from kentucky. mr. paul: on behalf of senator mcconnell and myself, i introduce this amendment to create a bridges fund. we've done considerable nation-building abroad. i think it's time we do some nation-building at home. we have two bridges in our state -- spence bridge and the sherman bridge that need repored and replace. we don't have enough known our highway trust fund. this would create a new bridges fund coming from money we are currently sending overseas to build bridges overseas so it would bring foreign aid money back home to the united states where it is needed. it would also take some money from the department of energy loans which i think could be more useful here at
for the president to submit a budget for consideration by the united states senate. as we all know, the law requires the president to submit a budget the first monday in february, that the president has not done so four out of the last five years, nor will he do so this year reportedly until april. the problem with that is we will finish our work here this week, the house will finish their work, and the president has rendered himself entirely irrelevant. we know because the house passed a no-budget, no-pay bill that it prompted the first budget here in the senate in more than 1,400 days, and that's a good thing, that's progress. we'd like to do the same thing now with the office of management and budget, encourage the president to be relevant to the budget debate and require him to submit his budget on a timely basis, and i would ask colleagues for their vote. mrs. murray: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from washington. mrs. murray: mr. president, there is no opposition and we would suggest a voice vote. the presiding officer: all those in favor say aye. those opposed, no. the aye
law basically established discretionary spending amounts so you technically did not need a budget in the last couple of years. but also democrats in the senate have just been getting hammered for not introducing a budget resolution and they finally decided that it's in their interest to have a plan out this year. >> so with all this work on these various budget proposals what is the endgame? what is next? >> well, there will probably be some attempt to get a compromise between a house and the senate budget resolutions. very unlikely that they will be able to compromise because they are so far apart. but there are some commonalities in these budgets even though there are great differences between them, and so these two plans could be the beginning of a bigger agreement over the next several months. the debt ceiling will have to be raised sometime this summer and these plans could become part of a larger plan to raise the debt ceiling. >> paul krawzak writes for cq roll call. thanks for talking with us today. >> thank you. >> president obama officially nominated thomas perez to be h
